Turtle Bay for Breakfast

As I'm sitting here drinking my peppermint mocha morning frappe, I'm dreaming of tropical breakfasts.  I'm not a breakfast eater at home, but when I'm on vacation, I love those scrambles, fruit plates, cinnamon rolls, omelets, muffins . . .   You get the picture!

Akumal has turtles in its bay, and it also has an excellent place to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.   Turtle Bay Cafe & Bakery!

While researching Akumal restaurants on Trip Advisor, someone described it as being located along the main road.  I somehow misconstrued that as sitting along the main highway.  Not.  You'll find Turtle Bay Cafe in the central part of Akumal village inside the main gates in a garden across the road from the beach.

One morning while Craig was snorkeling, I walked into the village to browse the galleries.  First stop was Turtle Bay for the fruit plate and sticky bun.  Is this fantastic or what!

The sticky bun's a little out of focus, but so yummy!

After finding Turtle Bay Cafe on Day 2, it was our go to morning favorite!  Wouldn't it be wonderful if I was an organized blogger and took photos of menus and made notes?  ( I'm not.)  I'm going to take a flying leap and say the above dish is the Turtle Bay Skillet.

Hmmmm.  I seem to remember this as El Omelette!  True confessions.  I'm a cheater.  Here's their online breakfast menu.

I truly regret we never made it back for dinner at Turtle Bay because the menu and specials sounded wonderful!  Next trip, I'll try not to fall off my bike and trip in a hole so we can make the walk into the village at night.

Look for the monkey along the path and you're almost there.  If you're ever in Akumal, be sure and check out Turtle Bay Cafe for tasty fresh food!

Love the monkey! I eat breakfast here at home, but nothing like I eat on Isla--I will admit I have breakfast twice many days--once early when I go out walking & another when Alan gets up & wants to go out!

Ann, I eat a granola bar at home. So exciting! : )
